Diversity & Inclusion
At William Alexander, we understand the important role we play in promoting Diversity and Inclusion and enabling our clients to meet their D&I objectives.
Internally, we are proud of what we have achieved through building awareness and delivering training. Our proactive approach combined with our excellent maternity packages, sabbaticals, and flexible/part-time working (to accommodate working parents) has contributed to us now enjoying a diverse, low-attrition workforce made up of individuals with a much wider range of characteristics and experiences than is typical in our industry, including race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, and gender. As an example, over 60% of our workforce is made up of women in a sector that is renowned for being overwhelmingly male-dominated.
We also host and run the William Alexander “Female Leaders in Technology and Change” networking group, and are regular attendees of the annual "Dive In” (The Festival for Diversity & Inclusion in Insurance).
We recognise the need to continue fighting for Diversity and Inclusivity and these events enable excellent opportunities for networking and expanding our network of Associates as well as increasing our knowledge and approach towards Diversity generally.
